J.J. Hoover suffers seventh loss of the season in extras


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Reds reliever J.J. Hoover was hit with his seventh loss of the season Saturday night against the Pirates in extras.

Hoover surrendered a solo home run to Andrew McCutchen in the 11th inning, which proved to be the difference. Hoover permitted one run on one hit and no walks while striking out three over and inning of work. He owns a 4.95 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP over 40 innings of relief.

J.J. Hoover earns the loss Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Reds reliever J.J. Hoover picked up the loss Thursday against the Cubs. 

Hoover pitched two innings for the club. In his second inning of work, Hoover alternated between singles and strikeouts with his first four batters of the inning. With men on first and second with two outs, Hoover allowed a two-run triple to Luis Valbuena. The Reds couldn't mount a comeback in the bottom half of the inning, giving Hoover the loss. He drops to 1-6 on the year. 


J.J. Hoover stuck with loss Saturday vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover was hung with a loss Saturday after giving up a two-run home run in the eighth inning of his team's 4-2 defeat against the Brewers.

Hoover (1-5) has struggled with the home run this season, and Saturday's was his seventh in just 30 innings of action over 27 appearances. He owns a 5.40 ERA and 35:19 K:BB ratio this season.


J.J. Hoover tagged with third loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2014) Reds reliever J.J. Hoover fell to 1-3 this season when he allowed the only run in a 1-0, 10-inning loss to the Braves. Hoover recorded two outs in the bottom of the 10th before Jason Heyward and B.J. Upton singled.

Manny Parra relieved, giving up Freddie Freeman's winning hit. Hoover dropped his third straight decision.


J.J. Hoover walks three in loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover took the loss Monday after giving up one earned run on two hits and three walks in one inning of work as the Reds fell to the Pirates, 6-5.

Hoover (1-2) came into the game with two outs in the eighth and one man on, and he was able to escape the inning without giving up a run despite surrendering a walk and a hit. He wasn't as lucky in the ninth inning, as the Pirates managed a walkoff single with two outs after Hoover walked two batters in the inning. He owns a 13.50 ERA and 6:8 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.


J.J. Hoover melts down in a big way Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Reds closer J.J. Hoover had a big meltdown in his first save opportunity of the season Saturday.

Hoover had control issues, walking the first batter he faced. There was some controversy in the next at-bat. Anthony Recker attempted to bunt Juan Lagares over to second, but Lagares was ruled out on the play. After a review, it was determined Lagares was safe. Hoover gave up another walk to load the bases, which brought up a pinch-hitting Ike Davis.

The at-bat lasted just two pitches. Davis hit a walkoff grand slam on a 73 mph curveball. Hoover finished the game without recording an out. He gave up one hit, two walks and four earned runs. 


J.J. Hoover secures win vs. Cardinals Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, walking one and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning before his team went on to beat the Cardinals, 1-0.

Hoover struggled during spring training but turned in a strong debut. He should be the first option for saves in Cincinnati until Jonathan Broxton returns from the disabled list.


How heavily should you invest in J.J. Hoover?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Even though no one of any real authority has confirmed it, J.J. Hoover appears to be the top choice for saves in Cincinnati with both Aroldis Chapman (head) and Jonathan Broxton (forearm) sidelined for the foreseeable future.

So just how much of a priority is he in Fantasy? In terms of ability, I think he's a good fit for the role. He throws hard, and it shows up in his strikeout and hit rates, which isn't true for every hard-throwing reliever. He also seemed to turn the corner after some early struggles last year, allowing just five earned runs over his final 41 appearances for a 1.14 ERA.

But again, the job isn't for sure his. The most manager Bryan Price has offered is that he'll be part of a committee to begin the season (which never lasts, but he may not be the one to emerge). Plus, it's not like Chapman is out forever. At worst, he'll probably return by the All-Star break.

For that reason, I'm ranking Hoover behind other first-year closers like Nate Jones and Tommy Hunter and even behind a non-closer in Rex Brothers, who should take the job and run with it sooner than later in Colorado. I like Hoover better than anything Houston's closer committee has to offer, though.


Report: J.J. Hoover top choice as temporary closer for Reds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) The loss of Aroldis Chapman and injuries to Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall that could land both on the disabled list to start the season has J.J. Hoover as the top internal candidate to serve as Reds closer, FoxSports.com has speculated.

Hoover boasts the best resume of those left standing in the Cincinnati bullpen. He has a 2.61 ERA with four saves in the last two seasons combined as the setup man.


Pair of Reds' relievers shutting down opponents


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2013) Relievers J.J. Hoover and Manny Parra has been outstanding out of the Reds' bullpen lately. Hoover hasn't allowed a run in his last 17 innings (14 appearances), while Parra has a 14 2/3 scoreless innings streak (18 appearances) through Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Hoover, who has lowered his ERA from 5.40 to 3.30, has struck out 21 batters during his scoreless streak, while allowing seven hits and six walks. He also has two wins and one hold in that span.

Parra has struck out 17 during his scoreless innings streak, while walking three and allowing five hits. He's lowered his ERA from 8.44 to 3.55, while picking up one win and four holds in that span.


J.J. Hoover picks up save No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2013) Reds reliever J.J. Hoover collected his second save of the season during Sunday's series finale against the Cubs.

Hoover stepped up for Aroldis Chapman, who was unavailable. He needed 28 pitches as he worked his way around a base hit to secure a 7-4 victory.

Hoover has a 3.07 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP through 15 appearances.

J.J. Hoover needed for mop-up duty


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2013) After Reds closer Aroldis Chapman struggled to preserve a four-run lead in the ninth inning, J.J. Hoover was called on to record the final out during Cincinnati's 6-5 victory over the Cubs Friday. Hoover struck out the only batter he faced -- Darwin Barney -- to register just his second career save in 42 total appearances.

Relievers lock up spots with Reds


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2013) The Reds shored up their bullpen for the start of the season Sunday, providing spots to Manny Parra, Alfredo Simon and J.J. Hoover. All three players are expected to pitch in middle relief.

Hoover gets it done in ninth


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2012) With regular closer Aroldish Chapman dealing with shoulder fatigue and setup men Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall unavailable, the Reds went with the fourth option for a save in Wednesday's game against the Pirates, J.J. Hoover. Hoover tossed a scoreless ninth, striking out one batter and allowing only a two-out single before shutting the door, for the first save of his major league career, in a 2-1 win. “It was awesome,” he told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It was a good adrenaline rush.”
